I more liable to be fishing a Freestone on a free stone than a freestone…

I tried setting up my Freestone as my 7wt bonefish setup, but the reel felt too small and lacked the backing. I've now set up the Freestone as my 6 weight bonefish setup. It feels better than the 7, but I worry about the backing capacity. I also use the Freestone (spare-spool) when bobber fishing for steelhead on a 6 weight (using a 7 weight, Anadro line). True to the Freestone moniker, I think the reel feels a lot more dialed-in on a river than the flats. My 2 cents...
